In the wake of Chris Kelsay’s comments that not every player on defense was giving 100 percent effort on every play, Marcell Dareus was asked to assess his performance Sunday against Tennessee and thus far this season.
“I feel like I’m giving my all out there,” said Dareus. “I feel like I’m giving my all. I’m just playing the best that I can play. I take on double teams, I get no movement, and I do the best I can. I hustle to the play. I feel like I’m doing pretty good, but if they want me to give more, I’ll give more. I want to do the best I can on every play.”
“The play on the field is to me in line with the other people on the football team,” said head coach Chan Gailey of Dareus. “Can he be better? Can we be better? Yes, everybody can step their play up a notch and improve our defense and they all have to. I’m not going to talk about individual play one way or the other, it’s a group thing. Everybody has to do what they’re supposed to do.”
Dareus, did face some double teams. He finished Sunday’s game with a tackle.
